Tell me about the "injectables" Sculptra® otherwise known as "New Fill," and Radiesse®. What are they and how long do their results last?

Sculptra® (also known as "New Fill") is a synthetic injectable material known as "poly-L-lactic acid." It has been widely used for many years in dissolvable stitches and some types of implants. Poly-L-lactic acid is deemed biocompatible; it is a material that does not harm the body and is able to be broken down. Sculptra® works by filling in lines, wrinkles and skin depressions. It also stimulates the body to produce new collagen and underlying tissue. Results with Sculptra® may last up to two years.

Radiesse® is another long-lasting injectable used for facial contouring. It is made up of microscopic calcium particles known as hydroxylapatite. These particles, normally found in bone, are suspended in a gel. This material was previously used in dental reconstruction, for promotion of bone growth, and for certain vocal cord problems, and has been proven to be very safe and compatible with the body.
